Paint the Town
March 31 - April 6, 2019
En plein air or plein air painting is the act of painting outdoors. This method contrasts with studio painting or academic rules that might create a predetermined look.
Paint The Town is an Annual Plein Air Competition. Each spring, 40 Plein Air artists from across the nation work in various medium to capture the outdoor sights and scenes of historic Marble Falls and the panoramic Texas Hill Country. For a week, with thousands of visitors, there is an expansive exhibiting/sales gallery, live demonstrations, an 80 minute Quick Draw, Sunrise and Nocturne painting, a student competition and Saturday Family Day.
The sales gallery will be open April 4th through April 6th. While much of Paint the Town can be experienced for free, collectors will have access to a Friday night ticketed reception held in Lakeside Pavilion and early admission to the gallery. Nationally recognized judge, Eric Rhoads, publisher of Fine Art Connoisseur and PleinAir magazines will lecture and present the award winners.
